On the monthly chart, the conversion line (blue) of the ichimoku cloud system remains below the base line (red line) which means it remains bearish and the recovery from…

Investment Vehicles to Avoid

Share the #GYMBFF:

As you make important decisions about your money and what to invest in, it’s good to know which investments are good and which ones aren’t. Unfortunately, this isn’t always clear.

Share the #GYMBFF:

Hi Geri, I’ve read your #10Steps book. You discussed both these options but I just want to ask your honest personal opinion, which is the better option: peso-cost-averaging or one time investment, specifically for a waiting period of 10 years? Thanks a lot! -DS22 via #AskGeri email Hi DS22, Thank you for reading my book.…

I got this email from Security Bank (PSE: SECB) promoting their SB US Equity Index Feeder Fund (this is not a paid promotion by the way, I wish!). The caption further read “the US Equity Feeder allows you to invest in world’s biggest economy.” So naturally I got curious and here I am sharing what…

Ask Geri: I Want to Get VUL and Mutual Funds. Is it OK?

Share the #GYMBFF:

I’m planning to invest in VUL. But still, I also want to invest in mutual funds simultaneously. Is it ok to do this simultaneously? Which has higher return? I’m trying to weigh how much to allocate for both given my limited budget.

TEL Me Where It Hurts – When Buy and Hold Hurts Your Investments

Share the #GYMBFF:

What happened to TEL shows how Buy and Hold (Forever) can hurt Juan’s investments. Those who bought TEL in 2006, hoping to gain much from it, will be depressed to see that after 10 years, there wasn’t any capital appreciation. Wasted time. Wasted paper gains all those years. I hope not a lot of people did that. Though again, a small compensation is the dividends so in that sense, it is still a lot better off than time deposits (even if invested capital did not appreciate).

BSP Allows Unit-paying UITFs

Share the #GYMBFF:

With this development, soon there will be UITFs that provide passive income via dividends, without the need for Juan to redeem his investment principal. So Juan can just hold on to his principal, enjoy the capital appreciation, while reaping the unit-payment income on the side.

Ask Geri: OFW Prepared for Death Expenses, Now How to Live?

Share the #GYMBFF:

In a gist, VUL asks you to commit a monthly payment whether it is for the next 5, 7, 10 or 15 years. During this time, a portion goes to protection by guaranteeing an amount in case the owner dies, suffers disability or critical illness. Further a portion is invested in instruments that work like a Mutual Fund / UITF which grows exponentially over time. This fund is withdrawable for any use, such as eventual retirement, tuition fees, home purchase etc.
